With Lively Ottoman Illustrations
A Mint Example

Turkey/ Cyprus. BLAEU, W. [Amsterdam, 1647]
Natolia, quae olim Asia Minor. 15 x 19 1/2 inches
Superb original color; mint condition.


A beautifully engraved and magnificently colored map of Asia Minor and Cyprus, from one of the most illustrious publishers of the Dutch Golden Age of Mapmaking. It includes most of the Greek Islands and a well-detailed depiction of Cyprus. A pasha at lower right holds a mileage scale; two turbaned putti flank the cartouche; and in a vignette of a sea battle, two Ottoman triremes blast away at a square-rigged ship.
